I have been eating Paleo for almost 8 weeks now.
Larry has me on a “reset” to reset my body to be a fat burner and not a sugar and carb burner. So, for the last eight weeks, I have eaten protein, good fats, and good carbs. That’s it. It is paleo as far as I know. I am not currently counting Weight Watchers points. However, the way I am eating is basically simply filling.
I told you last weekend how good I feel. But you know what?!?
I miss pizza.
My husband and I were going to Chick-fil-A lat night to get salads and we went by a pizza place. Jason looks at me and says, “Can you imagine NEVER eating pizza again?” I said, “No way!” I am sure we will eat pizza again. We love pizza.
As much as I miss pizza, I don’t miss waking up in the middle of the night with such bad acid reflux I couldn’t sleep. One time, before I started losing weight, I woke up to find stomach acid literally on my pillow…stained. How unhealthy was I?
You know what else I don’t miss?!? I don’t miss the feeling AFTER I eat pizza. Half the time I feel like the pizza itself wasn’t as good as I remember it being. The other half, I feel guilty for eating three huge slices of Mellow Mushroom…our fave!
You know what I love? Feeling good in my jeans. Having people compliment me at work and say how good I am looking. FEELING like my hard work is paying off. Having my hormones in check. Having more energy. Loving life. Enjoying working out. Having more self confidence because I feel like I look good. Losing my belly fat. The list goes on and on…
Would I trade all of that for a piece of pizza? Never in a million years.
So, I miss pizza…oh, and cake…but not that much!
What food are you missing right now? Oh…and just to make you laugh:
